My Blogroll part 9: Football (meaning soccer)

I’ve been a heavy user of RSS since the beginning of feed readers, starting with netvibes, then on to bloglines, and for the past many years, Google Reader. In the right sidebar I have a closely curated list of my favorite websites, but those are by no means the totality of my blogroll. I’ve decided to share my blogroll, topic by topic, so people know which content I try to shove in my mind-grapes on a regular basis.

next up: Football (soccer)!!!

I’ve been a die-hard fan of the Portland Timbers for many years, and I regret the few years I was in Portland but wasn’t a fan. While I’ll happily watch a match from any corner of the world, I don’t follow any team but the Timbers closely. However, being an American footie fan is a bit more complicated because we have to, for lack of a better phrase, root for the sport in general. I keep up on the MLS, lower leagues in the US and the US Men’s National Team players wherever they are. The United States is lucky to have a pile of excellent Football writers as well, so check it out!

Condiment diplomacy fail!

Other than Metafilter I think this bundle may be the oldest. I started my public writing career in food writing with my college newspaper, and I started posting those columns online so my brother & non-college friends could read them. I once also fancied myself fated for a chaotic life in food service, so I tried to take it as seriously as any career. At one point this bundle was 100 blogs, but iv’e pared it down to sites that are reliably interesting to me, which may mean others think it a bit scattered. Also note these are worldwide/location non-specific foodblogs. Continue reading

Work it, girl!

Work it, girl!

This bundle started with RSS feeds from Metafilter, a site to which I’ve been a proud paying member for 6 years (and a reader for years before). The sites here are the sites to which I pay pretty close attention. Some are old reliable sources of high quality journalism, some are quirky collections of internet detritus, some are the new wave of online ‘magazine’ or 2nd hand collections of the best writing from all of the above. This bundle is always full of stuff worth reading. Continue reading

When you google "infographic" and see a rain cloud peeing on a marshmallow, you gotta post.

Data manipulation, statistics and infographics are the new data hotness, and though this is ahort list, it packs a wallop of awesomeness! Continue reading
